I recently had to advise a client on the purchase of an EPD and this one
didn't come up. Apparently they don't have it keyworded the same as
most of the others do.
This one has a slightly higher low energy cut off than most others - but
of course that depends on how they measured and specified that number.
IFF they mean kV as kVp and say a full wave wave form - ok - but if they
mean it as response to a single kV line as if from an isotope source -
then it is a bit high for diagnostic radiology. 100 kVp full wave with
2.5 mmAL inherent - min legal filter at that voltage - has the same
first HVL as 27 kV.
Of course MOST interventional radiology units these days are 3 phase
full wave at least - or inverter - which is a harder spectrum - and
usually 4.5 mmAL and up inherent.
